Enough jobs for graduate doctors: Motsoaledi

JOHANNESBURG – The health department said there are more than enough jobs in public hospitals for graduate doctors.Over 200 medical trainees have complained that they’re at home without work because of a lack of internships or community service positions.

The department said that there are places for all medicine and pharmacy graduates.

South Africa’s Junior Doctor’s Association says about 135 new doctors want to work in public hospitals, but don’t have jobs.

But the department said there are jobs for these doctors in rural areas that they are not willing to take.

“As I’m sitting here, for this category of doctors we have at least 147 posts available at this moment in time, so the 135 doctors without jobs must contact us.

“We will show them where these 147 posts are. We can advise them about these available posts and it’s up to them to choose where they want to go to,” said Minister of Health, Aaron Motsoaledi.
